Reclamation has found home at 54th and Winthrop

Broad Ripple Village Association’s


By Mario Morone

Find out what your neighborhood association is doing for you! Elizabeth Brown’s quest for antiques and artwork are a rare find at Reclamation. She owns the north side shop at 5335 North Winthrop Avenue featuring vintage items. “My parents took me to antique stores a lot when I was little. I studied interior design at Ball State University and the history of architecture that led me to antiques. I worked for Midland, an antique mall east of downtown Indianapolis. [Reclamation] is about a quarter to a third of the size of that place,” she explained. Her recent move south of the Broad Ripple area has breathed new life into an existing property. “I think this is a really neat, up and coming, artsy area. This is something that this neighborhood didn’t have and it’s a really cool, old building that was a factory in the 1930s,” Ms. Brown noted. “I opened Reclamation at 49th Street and College Avenue in April of 2011. [The 49th Street store had] about 1,000 square feet there on consignment. I started collecting vendors there. We have 54 dealers in this location that opened in October. There are vendors upstairs and downstairs. I told my husband that I was collecting people instead of furniture. There are a lot of different styles and local artists represented here. Generally, my rule is that everything is at least 25 years or older here or hand-made because much of it is artwork. There are a lot of vintage artwork and antiques here. I think people are surprised when they come in from outside because this isn’t what they would expect to see,” Ms. Brown mentioned. The vendors she met at her College Avenue location provide an eclectic range of antiques and artwork among 5,000 square feet on two floors in their new home. Due to the number of Ms. Brown’s vendors, they couldn’t all be listed, but their individual displays are well worth seeing. There will also be a 5335 Winthrop Ave vintage clothing boutique opening in [OO24 on map] Reclamation’s lower level sometime (317) 602-8672 in early fall. “We have a lady downstairs that makes scarves and vests out of doilies and old lace. She just moved in last week (early August) and I think she’s going to be really popular. There are a lot of repurposed items. As far as antiques, we have some 1920s theatre lights. The guy that I got them from had them in a barn for 40 years. He believes they originated from a downtown Indianapolis theatre,” she surmised. One vendor carves various objects from wood while another restores Schwinn

bicycles. A refurbished boy’s bike that is not for sale provides an example of his work to customers. At the time this article was written, there was a pink girl’s bike available. “We have 54 people that do different things, like pickers that may go to estate sales or garage sales. A lot of them go out of state and some of them are fairly well known. People call them and ask them to look through their barns or houses. I love it when I get invited to someone’s place to search through their items,” she said. A black rotary dial phone at Reclamation was recently used until a newer model replaced it, but another model is currently for sale in the shop’s lower level. Ms. Brown’s sleuthing for antiques is one of her many skills. “I also do wood restoration and upholstery as a hobby. When I started buying antiques, I figured that I should learn how to fix them. I took sewing and clothing construction classes at Ball State and transferred these skills to upholstery,” she added. Examples of

her work can be found in the shop. Describing the rewarding aspects of antique hunting, she said, “I think it’s really neat to see things that might have ended up in the dumpster get a new life and a new story. I know where these things originated. Its really fun to share the antique’s historical information with the customer.” Ms. Brown mentioned certain materials that are currently in demand: “Barn wood is very popular right now as many people are making items out of it. A lot of people are repurposing old furniture. One of our vendors takes apart old furniture and uses it to build new furniture.” Reclamation’s hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. Inquiries can be answered by calling 602-8672. Their Facebook page at: Reclamation/128376620574439 has pictures of some available items. Ms. Brown can also be contacted at Elizabeth Brown and her diverse collection of vendors have reclaimed an abandoned property, furnishing it with historic items for sale not found elsewhere. Reclamation is where you can find that unique artwork or antique to call your very own.

CareerCorner By Mario Morone

In your next job interview, telling a prospective employer a STAR story can highlight your job skills beyond your resume. Networking Coach Dale Hinshaw is a local expert in helping people tell STAR stories. He is a member of the Society of Human Resource Professionals. S is for a situation or circumstance that you encountered in your past work or personal life. It could be a problem requiring a unique solution that you develop on your own or with co-workers. T is for the task that you undertake to create steps to solve the problem. A is for your action or implementation of those steps or plan. R is for the result or final outcome of your action that leads to a solution. Each business faces daily challenges and they need individuals with innovative ideas to resolve them. You can demonstrate your problem-solving skills by telling a STAR story in about two to three minutes. The story that you tell with an enthusiastic and upbeat tone can emphasize your individual strengths and attributes. An example of my own personal STAR story is that I had not written for publication for a few years and wanted to start again. The task involved was seeking out a newspaper (in this case, the Broad Ripple Gazette) that might consider me as a contributing writer. The action undertaken was sending an e-mail inquiry to publisher Alan Hague. When we later met, he asked me to write two initial articles - a charity basketball tournament sponsored by Broad Ripple H.S. and Purdue University alumni Rosevelt Colvin and a biography on barber Paul Taylor. That was five years ago as the results were positive. The Gazette continues to provide local community news not found elsewhere as I've met a diverse group of incredibly talented business owners and individuals in and around Broad Ripple. Although this is a basic example, think of past problems you or your company have faced and how you helped resolve them. Everybody should have at least a few samples, either in their working or personal lives. They can be inspiring narratives that increase the potential employer’s interest in hiring you to utilize these same skills. By relating a memorable STAR story to a future employer, they may remember you long after the interview, especially when making a hiring decision. Your ability to explain your accomplishments in an articulate, enthusiastic manner in a job interview could lead to your next career and that is something worth talking about!

Bishop Chatard Historic Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Saturday, August 17th, Bishop Chatard will host a ribbon cutting ceremony in the stadium of its new $2.5 million athletic complex. This ceremony will commemorate the success of the $4.5 million Golden Opportunities Capital Campaign. 5885 Crittenden Ave [JJ30 on map] Events will begin at 6:45 p.m., in between the JV and Varsity girls soccer match. To honor this occasion, a 100-yard commemorative ribbon will be stretched the length of the field and cut by the leaders of the Capital Campaign. The festivities will also include a blessing from Fr. Paul Shikany, words of gratitude from BCHS President Bill Sahm, and a special surprise to fire up the Trojan fans. The success of the Capital Campaign is due to the overwhelming support of current families, alumni and community leaders. The campaign, the largest in school history, was able to blow past its goal and brought in over $5 million in donations. The state-of-the-art athletic facility is just one component of the campaign. The campaign has four other components (Teacher Compensation Endowment, The Academic Environment, Tuition Assistance Endowment, and the Campus Expansion Reserve). Each of these improvements will allow BCHS to provide its students with the latest technology and the best possible learning environment.

The background of The Gazette: Army Corps of Engineers Indy levee project public hearing is Aug. 23

Members of the public in the Indianapolis North levee and floodwall project area are invited to attend a public hearing and open house Aug. 23 at the Meridian Street United Methodist Church, 5500 North Meridian Street. The open house is 5-6:45 p.m. The Army Corps of Engineers public hearing begins at 7 p.m. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District Commander Col. Luke Leonard will chair the meeting. The purpose of the hearing is to accept oral and written public comments in response to the draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Study (DSEIS) which will be considered when the final report is prepared. The DEIS and more information are available at The open house session will allow for informal discussions with Corps’ representatives on the content of the DSEIS. The Corps will provide displays to illustrate alternative actions to complete the project along with the proposed action, the Westfield Blvd. alternative. The public hearing is a forum for oral comments on the DSEIS. A registration table will open at 5 p.m. where attendees can obtain handouts, provide mailing information for receipt of project updates, and sign-up to speak during the public hearing session. All oral comments will be made in an organized format with comments limited to three minutes. Each comment will be recorded. Comments made at the hearing will be included in the project documentation and will be considered in the preparation of a Final Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (FSEIS). As required by the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the DSEIS evaluates specific alternatives or proposed actions for realigning a downstream section of a proposed floodwall, additional tree removal at previously constructed sections of the project and changes to mitigation of the project’s environmental impacts. The Corps has completed construction of two sections of floodwall, within the Warfleigh and Broad Ripple neighborhoods; however, those neighborhoods will not receive full flood risk management benefits until all three sections of the project are complete and the levee receives an acceptable rating to meet FEMA requirements thereby reducing or eliminating flood insurance. When the DSEIS comment period ends, the Corps of Engineers will prepare a FSEIS which will provide detailed responses to the public and agency comments and include changes and clarifications resulting from those comments. The FSEIS will then be circulated to agencies and the public for a minimum 30-day review period, after which the Corps and its local cost sharing sponsor, Indianapolis Department of Public Works, will make final decisions on the future direction of the project. Those decisions will be set forth in a Record of Decision (ROD) by the Corps of Engineers. The ROD will explain the reasons for the project decisions, based upon the information contained in the FSEIS. “Public safety is our number one concern,” said Bonnie Jennings, Army Corps of Engineers project manager. “When the levee is complete, home owners and businesses can rest assured that that the levees and floodwalls – the complete system – will reduce risks that flooding causes.” The DSEIS comment period has been extended to Friday, August. 31, 2012. Written comments may be submitted at the public hearing, sent via e-mail to, mailed to the address below or dropped off at the Corps of Engineers events on Aug. 23.

The Yoga Center Of Indiana Opens New Studios

Nurturing the whole person - body, mind and spirit - The Yoga Center of Indiana, is focused on the total you and is expanding to offer a variety of wellness courses beyond yoga. In 2007, Heather Thomas Leo and Karen Fox partnered to take their individual in-home yoga practices public by opening a hot yoga studio in Broad Ripple, 6245 College Ave [H3]. The co-owners set up a second place in 2010 in Clay Terrace. This fall, TYC adds a third studio on the Northwest side of Indianapolis at 86th Street and Guion Road and a fourth at Carmel’s City Center this winter. "The two new TYC locations will offer a variety of classes that will complement our existing hot yoga centers,” said Leo. “ In addition to our signature style Hot Vinyasa and Hot Power Yoga, TYC3 will offer Thai Yoga, more meditation, PitFit Conditioning classes and combination workouts that will appeal to new and existing clients of diverse skill levels.” In addition to yoga, TYC @ City Center and Spin Cycle, located at 736 Hanover Place, Carmel STE 113B, Carmel, IN, will offer SpinCycle, a revolutionary new spin studio offering rides for beginning through advanced cyclists. TYC3 will be located within Indy Health and Fitness, 8660 Guion Road, a 10,000 squarefoot full service fitness facility consisting of temperature controlled rooms specially designed for group workouts. According to Leo, exercise classes will add to the existing collaborative spectrum of rehabilitation, injury treatment, fitness and performance development professionals that work with elite and pro athletes as well as recreational athletes, patients and friends. The Yoga Center of Indiana was founded in 2007 by friends and yoga enthusiasts, Heather Thomas Leo and Karen Fox. After many years of teaching from their individual homes, the duo combined their knowledge of Yoga practice, establishing their first Hot Yoga studio in Broad Ripple and plan expand to a fourth location by year end. At The Yoga Center, instructors teach and practice yoga every day, sharing our space and knowledge so everyone will appreciate the benefits of this ancient discipline. We have learned through our own experiences that yoga is a source to better health and true happiness.

I am a life-long resident of the Broad Ripple area. My family has been in Broad Ripple for many generations. Jacob Coil platted and named Broad Ripple in 1837. Two of his daughters married into my family in the 1870s. My grandfather was a mail carrier at the BR post office and a charter member of the American Legion Post. My grandmother Helen Dawson Hague worked at the Broad Ripple National Bank in Mustard Hall that became Fletcher Trust, then AFNB, then Bank One, and now Chase. My uncle Glen Hague worked at TV News and at Hoster-Roberts Ford, which is now Passwater’s and the Old Pro’s Table. My great-grandfather, grandmother, uncle, father, sister and son all graduated from BRHS; I am class of 1978. My son John is BRHS class of 2006, and works with several bands in IPS. I am currently the organizer of the BRHS reunions for the classes of the 1930’s and 1940’s. For many years, I have wanted a newspaper that answered my questions. Where did that store go? Why were those people digging on the corner? When is the BRHS Homecoming Parade? What happens at that business? The Gazette is that paper. You will get an unbiased look into what is happening in Broad Ripple because I have no financial interests in Broad Ripple, nor am I affiliated with any of its organizations. I am simply a resident who is passionate about the area. You will also read about the history of Broad Ripple. This history continues to expand as I uncover new sources of stories and photos. The Gazette’s area of coverage has no real boundaries. Historically, the town of Broad Ripple extended down to 54th Street. The goal of the Gazette is to share with readers stories that are within 10 minutes or so from the heart of Broad Ripple - covering events in the Midtown region. Also, Broad Ripple is one of the six Cultural Districts recognized by the City of Indianapolis. We try to let you know what is going on in the other five districts as we can. One question I often get is how an article gets into the Gazette. We do not accept payment for articles. Article subjects are picked by me for inclusion based on the interest to the residents and visitors to the Broad Ripple area. Since this is a bi-weekly paper, we will not be able to cover news as it happens. Rather, our focus is on issues that are not time sensitive. You will probably never see these stories anywhere else, so getting them a week or so later will be much better than not at all. We try to include a new/recently opened business or long-time business feature article in each issue. I have hundreds of stories planned, but if there is something you want to read about, please let us know. I think you will enjoy the Gazette. I know I enjoy bringing it to you. -Alan Hague

Sudoku is a nine by nine grid. The solution (each puzzle has only one) will have all the numbers from one through nine in every row and every column. In addition, the grid is divided into nine three-by-three sections. Each of these three-by-three sections will also contain all the numbers from one through nine. Each Sudoku puzzle from Pappocom can be solved using logic alone. If you prefer guessing, you can – but there is a logical way to solve every puzzle. Let’s start with the easy puzzle. We will try to put a 7 in the left section of the top row which contains 3-4-5-8. The 7 in the right section of the top row eliminates the spaces on both sides of the 8. The 7 in the center section of the top row eliminates the spaces to the right of the 3. The only place left is between the 5-4. You have learned one technique needed to solve Sudoku puzzles. There are many more.

Nearly 2400 wines from all over the world were judged as part of the 2012 Indy International Wine Competition at Purdue University during the first week of August. For the first time in the 39 years of the competition, an Indiana winery won the "Wine of the Year" Award. The 2011 Vignoles from River City Winery in New Albany claimed that prize. “For an Indiana winery to win Wine of the Year is very exciting for the Indiana wine industry,” said Jeanette Merritt, Marketing Director for the Indiana Wine Grape Council. White Wine of the Year honors went to Tabor Hill Winery of Michigan for their 2011 Gewürztraminer. Chateau Ste. Michelle of Woodinville, Washington won Red Wine of the Year for their 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon. Rosé Wine of the Year was awarded to 21 Brix Winery of Portland, New York for their 2011 Ellatawba Rosé. The Sparkling Wine of the Year was awarded to Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards of Sonoma, California for their Carneros Cuvee and Gehringer Brothers Estate Winery of BC, Canada took the Dessert Wine of the Year honors for their 2011 Signature Ice Wine. Hoosier wineries garnered 363 total medals. That includes 22 double gold, 26 gold, 110 silver, and 76 bronze medals. Oliver Winery of Bloomington won the Indiana Winery of the Year, the Governor’s Cup, recognizing the winningest Indiana winery. Indiana Wine of the Year was awarded to Wildcat Creek Winery, Lafayette, for their Chambourcin. The Indy International has a special award division for Indiana grown wines. A wine must be composed of more than 85% Indiana grown fruit to be eligible. Wildcat Creek Winery, Lafayette, won Indiana-Made Traminette of the Year, honoring Indiana’s Signature Wine and Grape. They also won Indiana-Grown American Wine of the Year for their Steuben. Brown County Winery of Nashville won the Indiana-Grown Fruit Wine of the Year for their 2011 Hard Cider. River City Winery of New Albany won the French-American Wine category for their 2011 Vignoles. Huber Orchard, Winery & Vineyards of Starlight won the Indiana-grown Vinifera Wine of the Year for their 2010 Heritage. The Indy International is held at Purdue University and run by the Indiana Wine Grape Council. For a list of all medal-winning wines, log onto www.

Meanwhile on the west coast....

Downtown Indianapolis' Easley Winery's REGGAE RED was voted favorite among all gold medal winning sweet wines at the Long Beach Grand Cru International Wine Competition earlier this month. That honor comes on top of previous awards this year as the sweet red wine won Gold and Best of Class in the Pacific Rim International Wine Competition and was a Gold medal winner at the Tasters Guild International Wine Competition.

Vol. 9 No. 17

Gettin’ Ripped in Ripple by Laura Minor

Getting Started You have probably noticed that I regularly have guest columnists write for my column; and I love doing so. No, I'm not a slacker... I find it an awesome way to share other perspectives of health and wellness through my trainers. This is the first article that is authored by my amazing client Jen K. She has been working with me for a year and has made incredible strides. I thought it would be great to share her story through her own words. Enjoy! We find ourselves saying it all the time, “wow, I really need to lose weight.” But, at what point do you decide that enough is enough, and you have to make a major change? The answer to that question likely is unique to every individual, maybe it was seeing a picture of yourself and realizing that you didn’t look the way you thought you did, maybe you have avoided mirrors for quite a while and suddenly were faced with one you couldn’t ignore, or maybe you decided that you wanted to get fit for an upcoming race or activity. For me, it was a combination of all of the above. I saw a picture and was horrified, then I took a long look in the mirror and knew I was unhappy with what I saw. Next, I signed up for the Mini. No matter what the reason, I knew it was time for a change, and I knew the time was now. But, how would I get started? And more importantly, how would I keep going, when the scale stopped moving downward and it seemed I had been plateaued for months. Over the course of the past year, I have lost 60 pounds. How did I do it? I cleaned up my diet, started exercising, and created a few rules along the way. #1 - Establish your goals, write them out, and keep them somewhere you can see them regularly. Then, break the larger down into smaller parts. Are you out to lose a specific amount of weight? Do you want to try out a new diet for a certain period of time? Do you want to fit into a specific size designer jean? Take your bigger goal and break it down. The more you can feel accomplishment and ownership over your goals, the more motivated you will be to continue. Choose a treat or something to reward yourself with when you meet your goals. #2 - Schedule your workouts and track your food. Every workout, whether with a personal trainer, going to a class, or out for a run, went on my calendar. I didn’t count calories, I chose healthy food in smaller portions and wrote the food down. Don’t lie to yourself, write everything down that goes into your mouth. #3 - Don’t get mad at yourself. There will be mistakes. You will eat something that isn’t healthy. You might miss a workout once in a while. You’re human, it happens. An infrequent dessert, one missed workout, or one extra snack – these things won’t ruin your weight loss strategy. The important part is forgiving yourself and moving forward. Also, don’t let one slip-up ruin your diet for the day. I used to say “well, I already ate (insert unhealthy dessert here), I might as well keep going.” Stop it before you get out of control and lose the entire day. #4 – Recognize when you’re bored with your workouts and don’t be scared to try something new. My goal is 5-6 workouts per week. Doing the same thing that many times per week can get boring, easily. Mix it up, try different classes at different gyms. If you can, find coupons for gyms in the area. At one point I was going to classes at 7 different gyms. Sometimes I got nervous at a new place, but they are happy to have you, and half of the battle is just getting yourself there. When the scale starts moving downward, you’ll know all of the lifestyle changes are paying off. Set goals, make them feasible, determine you rewards, and plan how you’ll get there. You’ll be glad you did. Laura Minor owner and operator of So.Be.Fit. Personal Training and Fitness studio located at 54th and the Monon. She is passionate about teaching others how to “FIT” exercise and physical activity into their daily lives, and have fun while doing so! Visit her website at or e-mail her at

Poetic Thoughts

The poem below has no title. If I was forced to choose one it might be: "an existential push in the right direction".

the contingencies make no sense the mistakes provide no recompense so we whirl thru our given realities in our given universe making the most of it (mostly) living learning loving thru the pain the struggle is epic (but worth it) c.w.pruitt 2 june 8, 2011

Changes to business directory

Now that the new smoking ban is in effect we have changed the Gazette business directory listings for bar and restaurants. We used to mark non-smoking bars and restaurants with NS (non-smoking). Now we will use S (smoking) to indicate which still allow smoking. We will also be adding 21 indicators to the listings for bars and restaurants that do not allow patrons under 21. If your establishment is 21 and over, please contact the Gazette at 508-6634 or

The Town of Broad Ripple was incorporated in 1894, and started holding regular meetings at that time. In each issue, I will print my transcription of the old Town of Broad Ripple meeting minutes. These are taken from original, hand-written minutes that contain many spelling errors. I transcribed the records as they were entered, including errors. I will make some corrections/additions to the text in brackets [ ]. The original minutes books are at the Indiana State Archives at 6440 E. 30th St.

Send me your email address and I will add you to the email reminder list. History Saturday is now meeting at a new time and location. We will meet on the 3rd Saturday of each month from noon to 2pm at the White River Yacht Club. Lunch will be available for purchase. Where is the WRYC? Ahh! That is the tricky part. It is on the east bank of the White River at about 74th Street. I recommend NOT trying to get there from the south, because of the street layouts and construction detours in Ravenswood. Directions (although if you are really cool, you will come in your yacht!):

1) Come to Ruth Drive and Keystone Avenue. It is between 75th and 71st. This is where Walmart is. 2) Turn west onto Ruth Drive (Turning east onto Ruth would take you into the Walmart center). 3) Take Ruth Drive west towards the river about 5 blocks and turn north (right) onto Ralston Avenue. 4) Take Ralston about 2 blocks north to 74th Street which is clearly marked. You can only turn left here, west, toward the river. 74th Street will turn into the White River Yacht Club parking lot. 5) Call me on my cell phone when if you get lost 508-6634.

Right in my Own B a c k y a r d by Brandt Carter To Market, To Market This is the most bountiful time of the year! If you haven’t taken in a Farmers’ Market lately, you’re missing the natural goodness of Indiana. Each market has its own vendors ― and unique personality. You can pick up fresh produce or baked goods almost any day of the week at various markets. I don’t have a complete list because markets often spring up at local churches or even hospitals, but I can advise you of the following: • Broad Ripple Farmers Market – Saturday mornings • Binford Farmers’ Market, 65th & Binford – Saturday mornings • Carmel Farmers’ Market at Carmel Palladium – Saturday mornings • Farmers’ Market at Indianapolis City Market – Wednesday mornings • Abundant Life Church Farmers’ Market, 86th & Hague – Thursday evenings • 38th and Meridian Farmers’ Market – Thursday evenings • Geist Farmers’ Market – Thursday afternoons • Stadium Village Farmers’ Market (near Shapiro’s downtown) – Tuesdays • Traders Point Creamery Farmers’ Market – Friday afternoon and early evening There are more markets in surrounding areas including Greenwood, Fishers, Zionsville, Noblesville, and Saxony. Each market features seasonal offerings and many have weekly entertainment. Let me “beat the drum” for the great items that await. You can find all kinds of fruits, vegetables, and herbs grown locally. The meats range from organic lamb, chicken, beef, and pork to bison. There are cheeses, breads, pies, jams, honey, and other scrumptious baked goods. Flowers and plants abound. You may also find specialties including fresh backyard birdseed, local crafts, scents, oils, dips, dog gourmets, coffees, teas, and pastas. Breakfast sandwiches, tamales, crepes, pizza, and other ready-to-eat treats are sold too. My favorites are the flavored oils and vinegars, the fresh herbs, the mixed bouquets of field-grown, local flowers plus the wonderful sweet corn and tart apples. I so miss weekly trips to market on cold January days that I make a point of getting to them in the growing season. When time is right, the taste of succulent Indiana berries is not to be missed. Our markets are a little bit of heaven each week, and the array is ever changing.

Random Ripplings

The annual Broad Ripple Hamfest was held on August 4 at 74th and Westfield Boulevard at the Lobraico's. Amateur radio enthusiasts turned out to see the goodies the vendors brought to sell.

The markets are a great place to take children. Give them a few dollars and let them shop to encourage healthy eating. You may be amazed by what catches their fancy. The markets are also a great place to bring guests visiting from out of town to provide the flavor of our community. These small markets provide a preview of the Indiana State Fair, showcasing our agriculture and ingenuity. Here’s hoping to see you at one of the markets in the coming weeks.

Jonathan Gates is a newly appointed member of the Board of Directors for BRVA, focusing on membership. He wanted to be more involved in the community and felt the timing was right to further immerse himself in the Village. He sees a bright future for Broad Ripple not only as hub for small businesses, but also for the residents and their growing sense of community and pride in the Village. Working on membership, he hopes to have more resident member events to continue encouraging involvement. Please stay tuned for more info from Jonathan!


George Munoz opened La Chinita Poblana Fusion Taqueria at 927 E. Westfield Boulevard in July. With 20 years of restaurant experience, George was eager to put his ideas into action for blending Asian and Mexican cuisines in his own restaurant. La Chinita Poblana refers to a legend of an Asian princess in Mexico, and symbolizes the cross cultural influences, George explained. The menu mixes traditional Mexican flavors with Asian spices such a cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove, along with curry, mangoes and tamarind from India for an exotic fusion in the heart of Broad Ripple.
